                          San Luis Potosi, San Luis Potosi .- The second wave of avian influenza in Mexico AH1N1 attack a million people during the winter months, mainly in urban areas of the country. The lethality of the disease is eight deaths per 1,000 patients, but the Federal Government will invest 2,000 million dollars in the acquisition of 30 million vaccines to 23.8 million people requiring dose.

                          Do not vaccinate the entire population, but only to vulnerable groups.

                          This was stated by the Health Secretary Jose Angel Cordova Villalobos, in an interview with EL SOL DE SAN LUIS during your visit to this city where he led the work of the Eleventh Regular Meeting of the National Health Council held in the capital.

                          The scope of protection of influenza vaccine AH1N1 be between 30 and 70 percent, and clarified that the new virus is high transmissibility, but with low lethality.

                          Mexico has been a good example to the world how to deal with an epidemic, "maybe we are limited in financial resources but not in reactivity, we were the first country to grapple with the latest virus, but the outbreak in the first months could control thanks to the participation of the population because it had not been so would have been devastating. "

                          Health Secretary said the threat hanging over Mexico since 2005, when he worked in the preparedness plan for pandemic, "we expected the H5 N1 virus with a fatality rate of 60 percent, but we face a different virus and had to prepare for the worst, but we control the situation. "

                          In the National Health Council participate in the health sector owners of each entity, which total 32, but also SEDENA health director, staff of IMSS, ISSSTE, Pemex and the president of the network of healthy communities, "we now have a joint real to implement and coordinate efforts against influenza.

                          Cordova Villalobos said that coupled with the work to contain the new virus the Ministry of Health is responsible to integrate the industry for universal access to health care, "is the vision of President Felipe Calderón that everyone has the right to health, which spending does not cause us to optimize impoverishing and integrating resources to sectors to avoid duplication of efforts and expenses.

                          Around the effectiveness of the vaccine against human influenza, said it is not the only means of prevention because they are also mechanisms of social distancing, "it works well, simple things like washing hands, Mexicans are very mood, but it is impolite to greet someone by hand or kiss when one is sick, so we must change our culture because vaccines are complementary.

                          One of the major problems to combat the new evil is self-medication which is very handy in Mexico, "and more for a disease that appears to be flu is believed to be cured with antibiotics, but these only half dazed and virus not destroy it, and when it appears again around three days and severe symptoms and everything gets complicated. The secret is to go on time, he does during the first three days does not have to die. "


                          On the fifth of October begins the campaign against seasonal flu when supply 19.5 million doses for children, seniors and health personnel.

                          Doses will arrive in December against the H1N1 virus. "It should be clear that we are two different vaccines, one for each virus and do not apply to the population."

                          Dr. Jose Angel Cordova explained that people born after 1957 is a potential candidate to the virus "because the antibodies we were born before our long exposure to influenza viruses that are of many types and dupes, and by both are natural immune, but those born after 1957 are at risk of being infected.

                          "VIRUS natural or man?

                          Asked about rumors that the virus came from a laboratory, the federal official rejected that hypothesis, "that is discarded, all studies suggest that it is a virus that mutated nature, which in 1976 tested animals first, then East returned to mutate until it spread to humanity. "

                          THE FLARE

                          To date in Mexico have been documented cases of influenza 28.000. 6,000 of seasonal and 22,000 influenza A H1N1 virus.

                          "We hope that in the winter months, but in the case of microorganisms may be wandering behavior or atypical. As an example we have the Aedes mosquito transmits dengue Egypti, which had previously resisted an altitude of 1,500 meters above sea level But now they are. The smaller an organism becomes more adaptable.

                          He explained the doctor born in Leon, Guanajuato, San Luis Potosi roots but that in the second wave of human influenza virus the most affected population will be living in urban areas "by the concentration of people in the rural population is dispersed, but in urban, many are closed spaces such as shopping malls and urban transport.

                          He explained that the vaccine against influenza A H1N1 apply to health officials, pregnant women, children 6 to 24 months, child care staff who care for children under six months, of any age who are obese, diabetic, uncontrolled or unstable, those with lung problems, disease lower their defenses as AIDS or cancer, and those with neuromuscular problems.

                          Dr. Jose Angel Cordova said that 20 million doses are secured with a European company "and another 10 million are negotiating on the Chinese market where it is confirming its quality assurance, because not everything Chinese is bad, are not pirates, the patent of the vaccine does not exist ".

                          In Mexico we will begin to produce vaccine next year and through 2011 will begin to trade.

                            This center, he said, will handle all situations, the logistics, planning and administration, everyone will have a specific role to play in times of crisis.

                            In hospitals, the organization will be different: specific medical staff will receive the sick, others only to diagnose, some more to report and upload all data to the reporting platform that will reach the central guard.
